From Fab Event Design… The day can only be described as magical. The bride, Morgan, says their hearts were entirely captured seeing the space filled with hanging floral arrangements, crystal chandeliers, and an aisle full of greenery that created a lush, indoor garden. The romantic ceremony blew them away with the 30 foot tall handmade backdrop, the room filled with the sounds of the string quartet, and the surprise gospel choir that serenaded the room with “All You Need Is Love” in a scene that was directly inspired by the move Love Actually. She felt so beautiful in her Hailey Paige gown paired with a Twigs & Honey headpiece that matched her bohemian spirit and impeccable style.
The space was completely transformed for dinner with a regal head table that was framed by hanging floral decor that were dripping with greens and garden roses. Guest tables were illuminated by chandeliers and styled with an endless lines of candles, florals, and metallic vases. Guests dined on duet plates of salmon and beef while sipping champagne and enjoying the live entertainment of a blue grass duo. After dinner, they were treated to a custom designed dessert table featuring miniature sweets, macaroons, multiple cakes, and chocolate bars with artwork to match the custom calligraphy invitations.
Some of the many personal touches throughout the night included adding their favorite love song lyrics to the table numbers, using her grandfather’s classic car as a greeting place and gift holder, as well as a welcome wall of floral and legacy photos of the couple and their parents and grandparents’ weddings. The love Morgan’s family had for her shown through in the love that went into the hand-lettered welcome sign and the ceremony backdrop creation. The musical surprises continued throughout the evening with Morgan bringing an entire room to tears with her own performance of the song “Yours” by Ella Henderson, and the maid of honor toast song that was personally crafted by the bride’s sister.
A memorable story of the day was while the group was taking photos. One of the bridesmaids went for a silly pose with the bride and misunderstood the directions and planted a big kiss on Morgan’s cheek; leaving the bride with pink-lipped reminder on her cheek of how much she means to her friend.
